of flight 214 as it crashed landed at sfo. kpix 5's len ramirez in south san francisco and the ntsb briefed us again on the very latest today. len, what did you learn? >> reporter: allen, much of what we learned today focused on the activities of the flight attendants right after the crash. we just heard there was some heroism but there was also some confusion, as well. in the aftermath of the crash of asiana flight 214, flight attendants did not immediately start an evacuation of passengers. ntsb investigators said flight attendants told them they weren't sure what they should do. >> after the aircraft came to a stop, the cabin manager who was seated in 1l asked the flight attendant seated with her in that area to go to the flight deck and ask the flight crew what to do. the specific interest was should we evacuate? should we begin an evacuation? >> reporter: the answer that came back from the pilots was, no. >> the flight crew told the flight attendant not to initiate an evacuation. they were communicating with the tower about the emergency. the lead or the cabin manager made an announcem
by a few miles an hour, it was sufficient for a small. >> the ntsb told us that at 7 seconds there was a voice in the cockpit that asked to increase speed. at 4 seconds there was a device that shakes the stick which means that the aircraft is on an incipient stall. then at 1.5 seconds to go there were voices in the cockpit that said go around which is an order to go full power and take the aircraft out of danger. we know those actions were given. the question is should she have been given earlier. gregg: the answer is obviously yes. >> in terms of the outcome absolutely. but what we have to unthrough the ntsb is how we came to this position given the most of the approach -- the information we have so far tells us it seems to be fairly stable. the throttles were island and the pilots were making a steady approach. what i would say about sfo is the approach is a fairly complicated approach. the crew would have been fatigued. they would have been coming to a relatively long day and the pilot is given visual flight rules. there is visibility in excess of five miles. but most pilo
the latest this half-hour, the ntsb spoke with the pilot in training abut about the accident. >> investigators are looking closely at every last second. the very last second before the crash. here's abc's david muir. >> reporter: new images of the fleeing passengers determined to get out alive after asiana airlines flight 214 crashed as it came in for landing. you can see the emergency chutes inflate. passengers sliding down them racing to get away from the plane. all of this unfolding after the crucial seven seconds that decided the fate of the flight. the pilot in charge of landing in training. the first time landing a boeing 777 in san francisco. and from one of the black boxes we've learned that just seven seconds before impact, a call from the cockpit. the pilot suddenly looking to increase speed. the jet hovering far too low over the water. then just four seconds before impact, the jet approaching the seawall at the end of the runway and then just a second and a half before impact, a call from the cockpit for a go-around to circle the airport again. it was far too late.
hour. what do we have today? >> it seems like every hour new information comes out. ntsb has been very open about the information they've gotten and very early on. what is peeking people's interest -- what is piquing people's interest is how the pilot only had 43 hours in a 777 and was landing for the first time in this type of plane in san francisco which is known for being a difficult landing airport because you're coming in over the water. does that mean he was at fault for this or was it a combination of pilot error and mechanical failure? still early to tell but it is something that has a lot of people talking as the time line came out from ntsb. we have new video. this video came to us last night which shows people coming down the slide, is truly remarkable as you see the plane kind of flip up in the air, people coming out of the slide, in some cases coming out of holes in the back of the plane where the tail section used to be. when the ntsb video comes up, you see debris spread around over 200 yards where the bay end and the runway begins. that debris field spreads to the fusel
the ntsb last night. there was no mechanical or engine problems reported. the pilot indicated no issues on the flight data recorder or on the cockpit voice recorder. and they aborted landing, it was tried -- an aborted landing was tried at the last second. the ntsb says asiana 214 was going slower than the recommended speed for landing. the ntsb also says the asiana tried to speed up right before the crash. >> the approach speed was 137 knots. and the question was whether or not we had the lowest speed that the crew achieved. i will tell you that the speed was significantly below 137 knots. and we're not talking about a few knots. >> 291 passengers, again, or on the asiana flight 214. that includes two chinese teenagers sitting in the back of the plane. they were thrown out of the plane. they were killed at the scene. there's an investigation today as to whether one of these teenagers was possibly hit by one of the emergency vehicles responding to the scene. obviously it was a chaotic scene right when the accident first took place and the emergency crews were responding. the passengers
, miguel? >> reporter: yes. not an official word for some time but the ntsb is speaking to all four pilots that were on that plane, those interviews will probably be ongoing, they want to know what they were doing and seeing on the cockpit on all the instruments and that incredible video that we're seeing now that shows us what a textbook emergency escape this was. moments after impact emergency chutes deployed from the plane. >> my god that's scary. >> reporter: you see one person zipping down and a stream of people running for their lives. one slide reportedly popped open inside the plane trapping people. >> we have heard there were some problems inside the aircraft. we need to understand why that happening. >> they're [ bleep ] running. >> oh my god. >> reporter: in a minute, dozens of emergency vehicles surrounded the flaen. the possibility a plane crash victim was struck by an emergency worker vehicle now part of the investigation. >> we are reviewing airport surveillance video. >> reporter: united 885 baiting to take off. >> these people and i think they are walking around. >> report
. the crash of asiana flight 214 ut of sfo. the ntsb will hold a briefing about 11:30 to update us on their investigation. preliminary investigation showing the aircraft approaching too low and too slow to land safely. the pilot tried to correct the plane in final seven seconds before the crash, but at that point it was simply too late. asiana airlines says the pilot landing the flight was training to fly that 777 and had never landed one at sfo. the airline says a more experienced copilot was also on board and does not believe the training pilot was the cause of this crash. the crash ended up killing two teenage girls from china. this morning their parents, among dozens of victim family members who left china for san francisco. once they meet with the victims' families, the coroner is expected to release information on how the girls were killed, including whether one of them may have been hit by a fire truck responding to the scene. meteorologist christina loren is telling us it's a pretty nice way to start the workweek. >> we have gray skies, overcast conditions over the bay brid
at the airport with the latest on this investigation. so, adam, there's still no word from the ntsb on what may have caused the crash landing? >> reporter: yeah. and that's part of the investigation, jenna. they talked to two of the four pilots that were in the cockpit yesterday, the other two will be spoken with today. and you mentioned that development about how the person overseeing the pilot landing here for the first time in a 777 was doing his first time in charge. well, now the country of korea is looking at that and actually going to take a closer look and potentially pass some few measures to -- some new measures to actually have standards in place for when there's someone watching over another pilot, how much time they have actually in that position. so very interesting development as we learn more in the ntsb investigation. speaking of that investigation, while it appears this may have been pilot error because they came in low, and they came in slow, 40 miles an hour slower than they should have been and at least 50 feet lower than they should have been, ntsb won't jump to that concl
says no alerts of mechanical failures or distress calls from the crew. instead the ntsb says the boeing 777 came in too slowly specifically below the target speed of 137 knots. it tried another pass but failed. the plane crash understood the run way resulting in two dead passengers. the ntsb post-traumatic stress disorders that the investigate is in its early stages though the focus is on the flight crew. the pilot has nearly 10,000 hours of flight time though less than 50 hours in those boeing 777. >> we are hoping to interview the pilots. there were four pilots on this flight. there's a crew that flies out. there's a relief crew because it's a long trans-pacific flight. so we do want to interview all four of those pilots. we want to understand who was the pilot flying. who was the pilot in command at the time of the event. and what was going on. >> we're scheduled to get the latest on the investigation in less than a half hour. meanwhile the stock price for the airline, asiana, fell more than 5% today. back to you. tracy: rich edson, thanks for covering all of this for us. ashley: muc
didn't realize until 200 feet out that they were coming in too slow and too low. the ntsb also says the pirate in charge of the flight was on his first trip as an instructor. another new detail, two flight attendants were flown from the back of the jumbo jet upon landing. but they survived that. this morning, dozens remain hospitalized including some in critical condition. >>> today, house republicans are trying to craft a path forward on the nation's immigrant laws and speaker john boehner says there's a lot of crafting to be done. tracie potts joins us from washington and this is the first day of the discussion. >> reporter: it is just the beginning, richard, but it's going to give us an important clue as to how it may progress. we have a bill that passed the senate with republican support. but on the house side they say they're not even going to deal with that. they want to start from scratch and the big question is, are they going to deal with a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented workers already in this country, so behind closed doors today republicans
crashed here on saturday. as for the pilot, that part of the investigation ntsb has begun. they are focusing on that at this point. they have the flight recorders that go along with the investigation. we have pictures from a passenger. ben levy was on the flight. he took these photos on the plane and after he got off. it shows the scene around the flight as people were responding. first responders were there and passengers were getting off the plane, some of them with help literally on the back of flight attendants. others were making their way out themselves. as we get more of these details, we're starting to hear more about first responders. amazing stories of survival. one of the stories we're hearing about is a police officer. imagine this. fire fighters go on that plane. the smoke's there, the fire's there. there are people still trapped. but a police officer went on there without any fire gear at all and helped rescue people. take a listen. >> i didn't think about it. i knew those people were trapped in there and they needed help. we saw the black plume of smoke comi
. head injuries. we're almost losing a woman here. >> reporter: the ntsb says after hitting the seawall, losing its tail and spinning around at 100 miles an hour before coming to rest, the pilots told passengers to stay in their seats. no evacuation for a minute and a half. >> the flight crew told the flight attendants not to initiate an evacuation. they were communicating with the tower about the emergency. >> reporter: a flight attendant who spotted fire, finally convinced the pilots to evacuate the plane. >> i don't think they really understood how little of their airplane had arrived with them. >> reporter: but only half of the 12 flight attendants were available. three who were sitting at the rear of the plane had already been ejected from the 777. >> they need immediate attention. they're alive and walking around. >> reporter: and this morning, we're learning more about the final seconds in the air, too, from the ntsb. the captain being trained on how to land, told investigators just seconds before landing, a flash of light temporarily blinded him. was it a laser? the ntsb says it
microclimates all over the place. could have been different down there. >> stephanie: the ntsb chairwoman. >> the approach speed was 137 knots and the question was whether or not we had the lowest speed that the crew achieved. i will tell you that the speed was significantly below 137 knots and we're not talking about a few knots. >> they were coming in too slow. >> stephanie: then we were saying didn't they ask for a do over but it was seven seconds -- >> it was 1.5 seconds before impact. >> stephanie: the ntsb chairwoman. >> the call from one of the crew members to increase speed was made approximately seven seconds prior to impact. a call to initiate a go around occurred 1.5 seconds before impact. >> stephanie: yeah. seems a skosh too late. >> well, you're supposed to flair about 1,000 yards into the runway. something like that. and they did that way too early obviously because the tail section hit the seawall and clipped it right off. >> stephanie: much more of the latest on this whole san francisco tragedy as we continue on "the stephanie miller show." >> did anyone tell the pilgrims
. ntsb analyzing air traffic control records, weather and the crew's action from data recorders aboard the plane. phil lebeau live in san francisco and has a lot more. >> reporter: a lot of questions regarding the experience of the pilot in charge of the controls over asiana flight 214. here what happe here's what we know according to the south korean transport ministry. the pilot at controls was in training, essential lil transition training to be certified in the 777. you need 43 -- he has 43 hours of flight time with 777. according to asiana, you need 60 hours of flight time as well as ten take-offs and landings 0 to qualify as a 777 captain he does have almost 10,000 flight hours on other aircraft. asiana 214's data recorder show no mechanical issues before the crash and in fact, the crews did not issue any kind of distress warning. the ntsb, by the way, needed to interview those asiana pilots which think hope to do today. >> we have to remember, there's two people in the cockpit and that's -- there's a reason why we have that, we want to have some safety redundancy, we want to hav

went wrong? nobody knows right now. the ntsb is hoping to talk to the crew today. we do know it appears this crew was coming in too low, too slow. they tried to abort at the last minute, but it was far too late. the so-called brach black boxes, flight data and cockpit voice recorders are shedding light what happened in the final seconds of asiana flight 218. during the approach, the conversations in the cockpit were routine, no indication of any problems until just seconds before landing. at seven seconds before impact, a call from one of the pilots to increase the speed. the 777 was coming in too slow, below its target speed of 137 knots, just over 157 miles per hour. >> we're not talking about a few knots here. we're talking about a significant amount of speed below 137. >> reporter: just three seconds later, the crew gets a warning, the plane is about to stall, losing lift, and its ability to fly. less than two seconds before impact, the pilot calls to abort the landing, but it's too late. the jet slams into the seawall at the runway's edge. this image from an eyewitness shows the p

, moron what the hell are you doing? get your nose up. >> stephanie: the ntsb chairwoman yesterday. >> we're now going to be looking at flight data recorder information to validate parameters, things like the auto throttles. >> that means nothing. what does that mean? >> that they would automatic -- more often than not now they land planes remotely. >> stephanie: some of that equipment wasn't work at sfo. it was under repair. >> a lot of people don't get as much practice slamming planes as they should. >> stephanie: for those of you who don't speak plane like chris and i, it would be as if robert hayes cannot blow up the auto pilot. >> via the tube. >> stephanie: auto was under construction. okay. this is in the "l.a. times." this is where i learned -- i had a tutorial. would you like one? cockpit actions of asiana crash scrutinized. investigators focus on why the copilots of asiana airplanes flight 214 didn't discuss their predicament. that's what everybody -- obviously they already have the cockpit recordings and it was -- that's what was -- there's like nothing. they're not even talkin
and a half for that evacuation to begin. this as we are learning more about the investigation itself. ntsb saying two and a half minutes before impact there were several changes to autopilot and auto throttle modes. it's not clear whether the pilots themselves were making the changes. the pilot of the aircraft told investigators at 500 feet he was temporarily blinded by a light. >> he did talk to us about the approaching landing, but it was a temporary issue. >> reporter: airports and airline officials eager to get back to full operations as arrangements are made to move the charred remains of flight 214. now authorities here say that there was a very large triage going on near the plane but we also know many individuals ended up near the seawall and that's where a lot of the issues came with them not realizing for some minutes there were people who needed assistance as well. kate? >> miguel, thanks so much. you can really hear the desperation in their voices in the calls. >>> to moscow t takes nearly 13 hours to fly if you ever wondered from moscow to caracas, venezuela. if edward snowden

in the last three seconds. the ntsb said all of the flight systems were working correctly. this points to pilot error. no final decision. but it appears that possibly the flight crew thought the cruise control was on. it wasn't. and they didn't have enough power to make it to the runway. robin? >> still want those answers. all right, david, thank you so much. i can't get over how calm many of those callers were to 911. >> and being told to stay on the plane for 90 seconds. >> i know you were out there. you heard about that. >>> now to amy robach, in for josh, with the other top stories. and boy, you're kicking it off with a good one. >> yes, it's an incredible survival story. it's an incredible story of determination, as one man fought to save his family. john riggs' boat capsized off the maryland coast, tossing him into the water with his dad, niece, sister and nephew. as everyone clung on to the boat, riggs took off on a five-hour swim to shore. he was so tired when he got to land, he actually crawled to the nearest house. >> just not knowing what was going on with them while i was g
this investigation with the ntsb coming to assist as an accredited representative. the boeing folks are already on the ground. they're going to find out, i believe, what happened here but the good news at least for boeing if there's any silver lining in it right now is that it doesn't appear to be anything to do with the battery. however, they're going to be looking to make sure that is the fact. the batteries are located much lower in the aircraft quite close to the wing in the rear and then also some in the front as well near the cockpit. the fire actually appeared on the crown up near the tail on the top of the skiff. >> so, mark if it's not the batteries, it's obviously something else. in some ways that could be worse for boeing no? >> well the engineers are back to their seven-day-a-week and the experts are. they're going the find out exactly what happened here and then fix it. >> right. officials have publicly said that evidence suggests this is not because of the batteries. you had the asiana crash, u another 787 that was headed to florida from the uk and had to
investigation. our phil lebeau in san francisco with the chairman of the ntsb. morning, phil. >> reporter: good morning, carl, and i'm joined by the chairman of the national transportation safety board. you've had a chance to talk with all of the pilots in the cockpit, and the thing a lot of people are questioning right now, how is it you have three people in the cockpit as they're heading in before the crash and yet none of them apparently notice they're going too slow? >> well, the information that we have from the pilots in their interviews is that they were focused on lateral and vertical lineup. they did recognize that they were slow, but they didn't recognize that until very late in the landing process. >> is there any indication that the automatic throttle malfunctioned? in other words, they were relying on that to maintain the speed they thought was appropriate. any indication that didn't work? >> well, we're certainly looking at what tools were available in the cockpit, what the crew knew about them, how they used the automation and whether it was working as designed. we have a lot mor
to dispose of the wreckage now that ntsb investigators say they have completed their onsite investigation. >>> well, just about 30 minutes ago, the associated press quoting chinese state media, released the name of the third person to die in the crash of flight 214. the girl died yesterday morning at san francisco general hospital. chinese state media identified her as lia yi tang and says she was a student who went to the same school as the other two girls who died on the day of the crash. her grieving family has asked the hospital not to release information about her. doctors did say she had been in the intensive care unit since the crash. >>> a group of students in south korea gathered to pay their respects to the victims. the service included mourners bowing their heads and holding a flower. there was also a photo of the two chinese teenagers killed on that day of the crash. the south korean student read a condolence letter that will be sent to the teens' families. a south korean group went to the chinese embassy in seoul to offer sympathy. >>> a janitor was crushed and killed at a gr
